Probably of absolutely no interest to anyone on the forum, but it has been confirmed that 'Spyfall Part 1' has a running time of 1 hour 5 minutes

It will air on Wednesday, January 1st, 2020 on BBC One at 6:55

Of course it's of interest.

I want it to be good. There were four good episodes last time (Woman Who Fell to Earth, Arachnids, Witchfinders and Resolution).

The trailer has more potential than the whole of the last series. There do seem to be some actions set pieces at least.

I don't think Jodie Whitaker will ever be seen in my eyes as the Doctor though.

Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
The Pilot
Bill: What's that? A police telephone box?
The Doctor: Yeah.
Bill: Did you build it from a kit?
The Doctor: No, it came like that.
Bill: Then how did you get it in here? The door's too small and so are the windows.
The Doctor: I had the window and a part of the wall taken out and it was lifted in.
Bill: What, with a crane?
The Doctor: Yeah, with a crane. It's heavier than it looks

**********************************************

Bill: Am I on time?
The Doctor: That's a very big question.

**********************************************

Bill: Why do you run like that?
The Doctor: Like what?
Bill: Like a penguin with its arse on fire.
The Doctor: Ergonomics.

***********************************************

(Inside the Tardis)
Bill: How do we stop it getting in? We're trapped in here!
The Doctor: Nothing gets through these doors.
Bill: But they're made of wood. They've got windows! (The Doctor goes down the ramp and turns on the power. Bill doesn't turn around.) Look, this is all mad, I know, but that's the girl I told you about. Heather. Only I don't think it's really her. I know this is hard to believe. I know you're not exactly a sci-fi person
(Then she turns around.)
The Doctor: Time And Relative Dimension In Space. TARDIS for short. You're safe in here. You're safe in here and you always will be. Any questions?
Bill: Is this a knock-through?
The Doctor: Well, in a way, yes.
Bill: Look at this place. It's like a
The Doctor: Spaceship.
Bill: Kitchen.
The Doctor: A what?
Bill: A really posh kitchen, all metal. What happened with the doors, though? Did you run out of money?
The Doctor: What you are standing in is a technological marvel. It is science beyond magic. This is the gateway to everything that ever was, or ever can be.
Bill: Can I use the toilet?
The Doctor: Pardon?
Bill: I've had a fright. I need the toilet.
The Doctor: It's down there, first right, second left, past the macaroon dispenser.
Bill: Thanks.
(Nardole is coming up the stairs as Bill heads down.)
Nardole: Oh, human! Human alert. Do you want me to repel her?
The Doctor: She's just passing through. She wants to use the toilet.
Nardole: Oh. I'd er give it a minute, if I were you.

*********************************************

Bill: Doctor! It's bigger on the inside than it is on the outside!
Nardole: Way-hey! We got there!
(Nardole and the Doctor shake hands.)
Bill: How is that possible? How do you do that?
Nardole: Well, first you have to imagine a very big box fitting inside a very small box.
Bill: Okay.
Nardole: Then you have to make one. It's the second part people normally get stuck on.

*********************************************

Bill: But
The Doctor: Yes.
Bill: We've moved again.
The Doctor: We have.
Bill: It was night.
The Doctor: Yep.
Bill: Now it's day.
The Doctor: Definitely day.
Bill: Oh, my God! Have we travelled in time?
The Doctor: No, of course not. We've travelled to Australia.

Smile
Bill: So?
The Doctor: So.
Bill: What do we do? Do I have to sit somewhere? Are there seat belts?
The Doctor: Well, you've done this before. This isn't your first trip.
Bill: Yeah, but it's proper this time. (finds a chair) Oh, that's a mistake.
The Doctor: What is?
Bill: You can't reach the controls from the seats. What's the point in that? Or do you have stretchy arms, like Mister Fantastic?
The Doctor: Oh, I stand, like this.
Bill: You never thought of bringing the seats a bit closer?
The Doctor: No, not so far, no.
Bill: Where's the steering wheel?
The Doctor: Well, you don't steer the Tardis, you negotiate with it. The still point between where you want to go and where you need to be, that's where she takes you.
Bill: How much did it cost?
The Doctor: Ah. No idea. Stole it.
Bill: Seriously?
The Doctor: Yep.
Bill: Why?
The Doctor: Well, actually, because I felt like it.
Bill: What if I steal it from you?
The Doctor: On you go, then.
Bill: I don't know how it works.
The Doctor: Well, neither did I.

*********************************************

Bill: Why are you Scottish?
The Doctor: I'm not Scottish, I'm just cross.
Bill: Is there a Scotland in space?
The Doctor: They're all over the place, demanding independence from every planet that they land on

*********************************************

Bill: If he's chasing us, he's moving very slowly.
The Doctor: Do you know what it means when something chases you very slowly?
Bill: What?
The Doctor: It means there's a reason that they don't have to run.

*********************************************

Bill: You need to listen.
Steadfast: I did listen. What did I miss? The Vardy have killed our families.
The Doctor: But you need to understand why that happened.
Steadfast: I don't care why.
The Doctor: Then you will die, too, and so will everyone on your ship. The Vardy are not your enemy.
Steadfast: They want to kill us.
The Doctor: No. They want to help you. Killing you is just a side-effect.

**********************************************

Bill: So, is it going to work?
The Doctor: That's up to them.
Bill: Did you just, well, did we just jumpstart a new civilisation?
The Doctor: It's a dirty job but someone's got to do it.
Bill: Did you do this all the time?
The Doctor: Do what?
Bill: Fly around sorting things out, like some kind of intergalactic policeman.
The Doctor: I don't sort things out. I'm definitely not a policeman.
Bill: Well, you live in a police box.
The Doctor: That's a pure coincidence.
Bill: Yeah, of course.
(The Tardis materialises.)
The Doctor: Back at the exact moment we left. The kettle's boiling, I've got a vault to guard, and everything is exactly as we left it.
(Bill opens the door.)
Bill: Wasn't snowing when we left.
The Doctor: Maybe I do need a steering wheel.
Bill: Where are we?
The Doctor: London. And this is the Thames.

Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
Thin Ice
Bill: Doesn't anyone notice the Tardis?
The Doctor: Your species hardly notices anything.
(Inside the Tardis, the scanner lights up most of the Thames from beyond the Isle of Dogs to past the Houses of Parliament in red, and reports Warning: Life form detected.)
Bill: So, what are the rules?
The Doctor: Rules?
Bill: Yeah. Travelling to the past, There's got to be rules. If I step on a butterfly, it could send ripples through time that mean I'm not even born in the first place and I could just disappear.
The Doctor: Definitely. I mean, that's what happened to Pete.
Bill: Pete?
The Doctor: Your friend, Pete. He was standing there a moment ago, but he stepped on a butterfly and now you don't even remember him.
Bill: Shut up! I'm being serious!
The Doctor: Yeah, so was Pete.
Bill: You know what I mean. Every choice I make in this moment, here and now, could change the whole future.
The Doctor: Exactly like every other day of your life. The only thing to do is to stop worrying about it.
Bill: Hmm. Okay. If you say so.
The Doctor: Pete's stopped worrying.

************************************************** *

Bill: Interesting.
The Doctor: What is?
Bill: Regency England. Bit more black than they show in the movies.
The Doctor: So was Jesus. History's a whitewash.

**************************************************

The Doctor: These men, why do we trust them?
Overseer: Hired them all myself, sir.
The Doctor: Ah. Why do I trust you?
Overseer: Sir?
The Doctor: You understand how important this is, yes? It is imperative that no one discovers where the stuff goes when it leaves here.
Overseer: Oh, I know that, sir. We use unmarked carts.
The Doctor: Are they ever followed?
Overseer: Oh no, sir.
The Doctor: Have you checked this personally?
Overseer: Oh yes, sir.
The Doctor: All the way to Hampton?
Overseer: No, to the steel mill, sir.
The Doctor: Hampton is code for the steel mill.
Overseer: Code, sir?
The Doctor: Yes. Yes, we need to use code otherwise anyone could walk in here and get you blabbing like a fool.
Overseer: That's a good point, sir.

**************************************************

Bill: So, you think Sutcliffe is an alien?
The Doctor: Possibly.
Bill: Because the creature is an alien.
The Doctor: It certainly appears to be producing fuel suitable for interstellar travel. Either way, Bill, I need you to leave the talking to me.
Bill: Why?
The Doctor: Because you have a temper.
Bill: Oh okay, well, I lost it a tiny bit.
The Doctor: You're about to meet a man, alien or otherwise, for whom human beings are raw material. Who grinds up children for profit. What we are here for is one thing. Information. We get that with diplomacy and tact. Charm, if necessary.
Bill: Okay. I get it.
(She plonks herself down in an armchair.)
The Doctor: Always remember, Bill. Passion fights, but reason wins.
(Lord Sutcliffe enters with the Doctor's psychic paper.)
Sutcliffe: Doctor Disco, from the Fairford Club! Obviously, one aspires to membership, but to actually be considered for (Sees Bill.) Who, who let this creature in here? On your feet, girl, in the presence of your betters.
(The Doctor taps Sutcliffe on the shoulder then punches him on jaw very, very hard.)
The Doctor: He's human. Thirty one years of age. Low on iron.
Bill: Yeah, that was pretty convincing racism for an extra-terrestrial.
The Doctor: My thoughts exactly.

**************************************************

Nardole: All right. There you go. There's your tea. I put a bit of coffee in it, as well, just to give it some flavour. See, it's much better when you stick to your oath. (He notices their change of clothes.) Oh sir, no. This is unacceptable. This is beyond unacceptable. This is naughty.
The Doctor: Language.
(Bill is doing internet searches on her phone.)
Bill: I don't get it. London, 1814. Monster, sea creature, serpent, really, really big fish. Nothing.
Nardole: Sir, you said you wouldn't be going off-world.
The Doctor: Do these look like off-world clothes to you?
Nardole: But, sir, you said you'd be coming back to your office!
The Doctor: Look, here I am. I'm in my office. I'm drinking my tea, in my specially chosen tea clothes.
Bill: I don't understand. How could it not have been headline news?
The Doctor: Never underestimate the collective human ability to overlook the inexplicable. Also, the Frost Fair involved a lot of day drinking.

************************************************

Nardole: Leave him alone. Huh. Chance would be a fine thing. Leave me alone. How about that for a new idea? I didn't ask to be re-assembled, did I? (Something thumps on the vault door, from the inside.) Knocking. What was that about? No one's going to open the door, just because you're knocking! (Bang, bang, bang!) Oh, getting cocky now, are you? Why? What do you think you know? What has he told you? (Bang, bang, bang.) Because, yeah, he may have a little friend now and, yeah, he may be a little bit distracted but I tell you something, I'm still here. And as long as I'm still here, you are going nowhere! (But the loud banging is scaring him.)
